Phys Chem Chem Phys. 2016 Oct 5;18(39):27521-27528.Single 1,8-octanedithiol (ODT) molecules adsorbed onto the Cu(100) surface have been characterized by using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and studied by semi-empirical calculations. STM images have revealed two types of chiral molecules on the surface upon adsorption and both types of molecules showed two bright spots at the extremities of a small rod due to the enhanced electronic density contrast of the chemisorbed sulfur atoms.
